  1. Because i had to deal with the cert recheck during level 3 up in Auckland, just ended up putting the factory stuff back in i get 'legally' why they make it an issue but also real stupid. I'd also get some heat shielding for the brake lines and clutch lines up above the turbo if you're factory location - they made a point of that too
  2. Have you got anything in the way of other suspension upgrades? I had my RS certed last year and they wanted an engineers report on the whiteline bump steer kit. Also had a bunch of suspension parts which were "too close" to other things and s**t like that but i cant even remember the specifics of that. I didnt need a driveshaft hoop and my tune came out at about 205kW on an aftermarket turbo.

    Dash resto

    Hey (Auckland based) folks, Any recommendations about how best to restore a classic 90s vinyl dash? have a spare for my RS as the current one has holes and $h!7 from previous owner dash gauges... Have heard about vinyl dye from the likes of repco etc but concerned about colour match (so if anyone has advice on this route keen to hear) otherwise i'm more than happy to pay someone if need be. Hopefully pic attached works haha Cheers
  4. Yeah for what its worth, in terms of the 'nit picky' comments: 1. change my boot seal 2. space out sway bar 3. driveshaft hoop (i'm only at 205kW) are a few of the things that come to mind haha
  5. Probably not the answer you're looking for, but your best bet might be to just call up a certifier that you might want to use and talk specifically to them. They are the ones who will end up making the say on your car (i.e. their neck on the line if it all goes to $h!t) and presumably they will be able to tell you a) what they won't accept and b) what they would need you to do in addition in order to pass the cert. A bit of a google and you'll find a few local cert guys i would imagine. i had a mate do exactly the same thing with a v8 hilux conversion he's currently doing. If you do it this way at least it becomes a joint process to get you to the cert by the end. I just got my RS certed as well and there were a bunch of annoying/small things the guy had me do but got there in the end.
  6. Finally got my RS back from the mechanic/dyno/cert etc. Will possibly do a build thread if i can ever commit myself to understanding how to post photos. Jumped on the "fACtoRy LoCAtiOn turbo" hype train and picked up 205kW atw on a top mount. Anyway car is fully legal now and has a brand new steering rack and fresh shifter bushes to boot so feels (almost) new so now to actually drive it (within the various covid boundaries of course...).
  7. I picked up a new 3" inch rage system recently in NZ via my tuner so definitely still possible to find something local? It was in the same realms of an HKS exhaust in terms of dollars as well but i also just prefer the mild steel set up vs stainless etc.
  8. Have a siamese dump pipe (2.5") if you're interested? i'm in Auckland though.
  9. Hey all, Probably a dumb question but sick of buying second hand ones that die. Any recommendations for a brand new starter motor in central auckland for a 5 speed (bc5)? Do you just rely on old Ripco/Super cheap ? or is there somewhere smarter for this type of gear. Cheers
  10. Yeah have seen a few people say that! Going to wait until i can get the rs up on a hoist tbh. getting sick of rolling around on the ground with no light haha
  11. Nice, i did assume that was the case ( i noticed from a trip to pick a part that the linkage did change slightly in the gc/gf chassis over the years too. I picked up a full v7 wrx shifter and linkage et (new bushes too) on the cheap so im going to run with that (and hope it fits....)

    Bonnet Latch

    That is the end objective.

    Bonnet Latch

    Possibly a really dumb question but having issues with my bonnet staying locked when on the motorway and my mechanic mentioned it might be a good idea to swap latches just as a check the current one isn't just worn out (30 years old now...). When bolting in the latch on the bumper should i be pushing the latch as far up or as far down as i can (if that makes sense haha). Cheers
  14. I've got 850cc fiveoh side feeds in my RS and haven't had any issues (got them cheap asf). Its still on a base tune on the link but idle is still smooth (runs a bit rich though). Getting it on the dyno once back from panelbeaters but no complaints/reservations from my tuner at this stage at least. His commen was the new ECUs (G4+ etc) are sufficiently modern enough to deal with bigger side feeds if i wanted to stick with them
  15. Does it blow hot consistently? If you try bleeding again, just check that the heater hoses are getting hot as well during the process. i had that issue once in getting rid of an airlock
